ADAM COURTENAY - THE GHOST AND THE BOUNTY HUNTER

In 1803, a convict called William Buckley fled an embryonic settlement in the land of the Kulin nation, to take his chances in the wilderness. For 32 years, Buckley lived as a Wadawurrung man, learning his adopted tribe's language, skills and methods of survival. The outside world finally caught up with Buckley in 1835, after John Batman, a bounty hunter from Van Diemen's Land, arrived.
The son of one of Australia’s best known storytellers, Bryce Courtenay, Adam Courtenay is a Sydney based writer and journalist and the bestselling author of The Ship That Never Was.

This event is being held in recognition of Reconciliation Week 2020.
